Indexing metadata of documents

GroupDocs.Search allows creating of full-text and / or metadata index on documents. To index only metadata without main content of documents, you only need to set IndexType.MetadataIndex when creating an index. The size of an index of this type will be very small.

The following example demonstrates the creation of the metadata index.


string indexFolder = @"c:\MyIndex\";
string documentsFolder = @"c:\MyDocuments\";
// Creating an instance of index settings
IndexSettings settings = new IndexSettings();
settings.IndexType = IndexType.MetadataIndex; // Setting index type
// Creating an index in the specified folder
Index index = new Index(indexFolder, settings);
// Indexing documents from the specified folder
// Searching in the index
SearchResult result = index.Search("Einstein");
